Sustainability improves the quality of our lives, protects our ecosystem and preserves natural resources for future generations. At Positive Life Workshops CIC, sustainability is associated with the organisation’s holistic approach, taking into account everything, including the fact that they turned to chicken keeping during lockdown. Going green and sustainable is not only beneficial for their company; it also maximises the benefits from an environmental focus in the long-term.
Smart energy efficient building
If you have visited The Base you will know that it is a new state of the art building with the latest technologies including energy efficient, smart heating reducing their impact on the environment. Their sustainable business practices lead to a significant reduction in long-term energy costs. Some quick initiatives like switching to energy-efficient lighting is really commendable.
Most of what you see is upcycled, recycled you name it. Claire and Kev at Positive Life Workshops CIC believe that the best thing you can do is reduce consumption in the first place to avoid using the earth’s valuable resources for production of new things. For things they can’t reduce, they opt for second-hand or reusable alternatives which minimise the need for more production and carbon emissions.
Positive Life Workshops CIC uses sustainable teas and coffee. They think, where does the coffee come from? Does it cause deforestation? Is it grown sustainably and for a fair wage? They also offer vegan cake. One of the biggest ways they have cut their carbon footprint and prevented deforestation is by reducing dairy consumption, and many are consuming less of it as a result.
